    Re: ok ini++ search is finding not existant values

    Right, I've just checked things out and if this is a bug, it isn't a bug in Ini++.

    So you can get rid of the bug by either:
    A] Getting rid of the "Alt Value = 2" condition
    or
    B] In the Event...

    Re: [Request] Voice detection object

    .NET has all this stuff built in, you can use it on XP or higher.

    I wrote something using it (not in MMF), but got annoyed because it doesn't understand me properly. =P

    Re: Ini++ Doesn't save over existing groups

    That is indeed what it does: It attaches a number to the name if the group already exists. This is sometimes useful, but obviously not for you!

    Re: Performance logger

    The installer, which I didn't make, was set up wrong and so it was incorrectly named.

    Hopefully this Ini++ v1.5 will get sorted out properly soon! Hopefully this week.

    Re: Windows 7 / Ini / App Data Dir Problem

    Indeed, YASO is not dev only. The confusion comes from the fact it says that it is ;) I think it was a late decision to make it for everybody, and so there was no chance to change that. Sorry =)

    Re: [Request] - ListView ++

    Actually I was thinking of doing this not long ago. The usual ListView windows objects allows you to do things like this - that is probably not a custom control.

    However, I don't have time now.

    Re: Flip page example using overlay redux

    Tis nice.

    The new page that is coming over should have some shading on it to show that it is curved, but as you point out there is no way that the Overlay object would be able to do that quickly.

    My solution would be to disable encryption, load the default INI and then enable it again. Another solution would be to store it in a string object and then use the "Load INI from string" action.
